The National Bank of Kuwait (NBK), the leading bank in Kuwait, has organised a hands-on banking and administrative skills training programme for the employees of the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED).
NBK’s efforts are part of its ongoing drive to promote the education and development of Kuwait’s national workforce, a statement said.
The two-month training programme teaches KFAED disbursement department employees administrative and banking skills and procedures. NBK’s Corporate Banking Group delivered the programme’s lectures and presentations.
“NBK strengthens Kuwait’s economy and society through a variety of initiatives,” said Mazin Al-Nahedh, NBK general manager, corporate banking group.
“For example, this program demonstrates our commitment to Kuwait’s national workforce and our eagerness to work with public sector institutions for the long term benefit and development of Kuwait and its people.”
"This programme is also a manifestation of NBK's interest in developing fruitful and lasting relationships with Kuwait’s national economic sectors, particularly companies and organizations operating in the oil and petrochemical fields,” Al-Nahedh added.
Osama M Al Attal, director of disbursement department at KFAED, said: “The Fund employees will gain banking and administrative skills and knowledge during their program at the various departments and branches of NBK.”
